Product Description

Review

'Actress, presenter and Celebrity MasterChef winner Nadia Sawalha spent 30 years yo-yo dieting until she learned to stop feeling guilty and enjoy food - then the pounds fell away...yummy home-cooking from her new book, which helped her lose three stone and keep it off' Mail on Sunday YOU magazine

'BBC MasterChef winner Nadia Sawalha makes meal-planning easy, with her healthy recipes and advice for breakfast, lunch and dinner.' BBC Good Food

'Eat yourself slim! Nadia Sawalha's delicious new recipes are good for your waistline and taste delicious.' Best

'The recipes in Nadia Sawalha's new book may be healthy but they also show a touch of indulgence. From risotto with seared scallops to baked peaches with honey-roasted almonds, these are dishes of a dedicated food lover. So the book is not so much a diet as a guide to guilt-free eating. As well as sharing her favourite figure-friendly recipes and tips, Nadia talks about her relationship with food, which may strike a chord with calorie-counters who tell themselves leftovers don't count.' Hello! magazine

'Celebrity MasterChef winner Nadia Sawalha has provided more than 100 recipes, personal anecdotes and tips in her new book Greedy Girl's Diet. Nadia has taken a very personal approach to weight loss and offers the 'real woman's answer to a happy, healthier, and slimmer body' and the recipes in this book are presented in a fun, easygoing style.'Choice magazine

'Must Read: Former Celebrity MasterChef winner Nadia Sawalha has released the Greedy Girl's Diet, packed full of tasty, figure-friendly recipes.' Saturday Daily Express

'Indulged over Christmas? Don't forget the old-fashioned method of eating healthily...'
--Sunday Sun

Tried and tested tones of diet books and dvds over the years - really didnt feel like putting myself through anything hardcore this jan (its always jan isnt it that we try to be good!) anyway I picked this up when I was out shopping (as I like her food column in the Daily Mirror) and I tried it yesterday - I cant state that its working wonders on my waistline yet as its only been 24 hours but my god the food is delicious!!! all proper dishes not rabbit food, full of puds, burgers and even guilt free fish and chips and tons of other gorgeous things you think you cant have! I know I can stick to this so if I just drop a couple of stone between now and summmer without feeling like im on a diet at all that will make me very happy indeed! thanks Nadia!

This contains Man Food too-I bought this as I loved (and cooked) the recipes she produced for the Lorraine show last year. I'm only a couple of days and four meals in but I (and my kids) love the recipes in this book! Easy to follow, easy to cook (so far anyway!) and the family haven't noticed that I'm cooking healthier food after the Christmas splurge!! I'll update this review when I've cooked more dishes, but this is perfect for New Years resolutions!!!

Food recipe books are a bit like records and CDs; don't expect to like everything. But this book's good. My wife borrowed a copy from our local library and we both found we liked so much within its covers that we had to have a copy. There were, of course, two choices - nick the library copy, or buy one! We went for the legal option.

But, would I recommend the book to anyone wishing to get a bit slimmer, without feeling cheated? I most certainly would.

The only let-down was delivery. It should have been next day, but took two days instead. Why? I don't know, because my wife and I were downstairs eating breakfast at the time at which the delivery agents claimed to have tried to deliver the package the first time. I can only assume that they didn't see the bell push and hit our front door with a feather instead!

Suggest Amazon try using Royal Mail instead, as they never let us down.

Full of fantastic recipes. What I like most of the book is that the recipes are simple with every day ingredients.
Wished there were more books like this

We have had this book for 6 months now and, similar to other calories focussed books, we have found it useful for when we want to make something at home and have the hassle of monitoring calories taken out of the equation.

My wife monitors calories every now and again when she needs to and we have a fairly good general awareness of how good or bad foods are for us and this book has some recipes in that we have cooked in the past but it has to be said not as many as other diet books.

The book covers a range of recipes over the following recipe sections and subsections:

COME ON, BREAK THAT FAST
Lazy Weekends
Breakfast on the run
Wake up to How Wonderful Breakfast Is

LET’S DO LUNCH
Soup, Glorious Soup
Spectacular Sandwiches
Super-Duper Salads
Ladies Who Lunch
Family Sunday Lunch

DELICIOUS DINNER
Yummy Mummy
Dinner Party Goddess
Dinner for Two

DECADENT DESSERTS
(no subsections)

I think we would have cooked more from this book if more recipes had accompanying images. Recipe images are a big thing for us as we quite often rely on them being a deciding factor on whether we are going to make a meal or not, and if this is important to you too this is a slightly disappointing aspect of the book, I would estimate around a quarter of recipes do not have an image to accompany them.

I have uploaded a couple of images from the book so you can see what a typical recipe page looks like, again another improvement for me would be to include approximate timings on recipe pages, we often flick through books for inspiration when putting our shopping list together and the lack of timings in cook books means they will certainly be used less frequently by us.

This is a brilliant book. The recipes are delicious. I especially like the Lemon Chicken Tagine & Sticky Pork noodles. I've also tried the chocolate mousse and raspberries which was another winner. I plan to steadily work my way through the whole book and probably several times over. The added bonus is that I have lost weight which is what this book is for. I would highly recommend it and enjoy!
